Press Reviews:

`This is an irresistible white wine that offers a much-needed break from intense Barolo tasting. The 2016 Langhe Nascetta del Comune di Novello Anas-Cëtta is a fresh and citrus-driven wine with crisps acidity and tonic layers of white peach, garden herb and blanched almond. The wine boasts a very strong mineral vein that comes forward with almost-salty intensity. This wine did malolactic fermentation until the 2010 vintage, but is now completed without that extra step.` Monica Larner - Wine Advocate. June 2017

`Straw yellow. Unusual, complex and fascinating nose of waxy lemon fruit. A little saline too. Quince and grapefruit beautifully intertwined with acidity. Gorgeous texture. Needs more age to show its true potential.` 17.5 points, Walter Speller - Jancis Robinson.com

`Nascetta is a delicate, semi-aromatic grape found in Piedmont and used for years as part of a blend, never really expressing itself in its own right. Recently a handful of producers (some 30 grow and produce wines from Nascetta) have let it off the leash. This example is racy and aromatic with green apple and pear fruit, wet flowers, morning dew and a wet stone mineral edge . Its chalky finish has a distinctive `bite` like undercooked Arborio rice.` Chris Wilson - The Buyer (13th April 2018)
